You swear this is the year you finally knock that triathlon off your bucket list. Problem is, your bike is a clunker, and your training rides feel like hell. Enter the light frame on the Cannondale CAAD8 6 Tiagra, which makes it a perfect road-bike purchase. This cycle’s taller head tube allows you to pedal in a more relaxed position, and the chain stay helps absorb shock for a smooth ride. It’s an investment, sure—but you’ll be thanking yourself all the way up the next killer hill. ($1,250; cannondale.com)
